Alcohol and Addiction Rehab for Seniors
In 1998, our Florida facility became a renowned pioneer and leader in age-specific addiction treatment when it opened the first-ever Center for Older Adult Recovery. Today, Hanley Center at Origins offers senior and addiction treatment for men and women aged 65 and older.
Hanley Center at Origins promotes a transition from substance use disorder to enhanced mental, physical, and spiritual health—at any age and stage of life. Whether you have been dealing with addiction for many years or a recent life event has set off a cycle of substance use, we provide the clinically excellent, holistic, and individualized care you need to find lifelong recovery.
Misconceptions About Older Adult Addiction Are Prevalent
Messages in the media about saying “no” to substances and getting help for addiction are often geared toward younger patients. Although it is certainly important to teach people about the dangers of addiction from a young age, the number of older adults who struggle with alcohol or other drug use disorders is statistically significant and warrants equal attention. Moreover, while two-thirds of older patients experience early-onset addiction, one-third of older adults suffer from late-onset addiction. Significant life changes, such as the loss of a loved one, a sudden illness, or relationship problems, can send a person spiraling into maladaptive behaviors and substance use disorders.
The reality is that, at any age, the difference between active addiction and treatment can be loss of life. Throughout our rehab for older adults, we want you to feel that the rest of your life is always worth living. We provide you or your loved one with an evolving rehab for seniors care plan that integrates medical, wellness, spiritual, psychological, and psychiatric therapies provided by a highly credentialed, multidisciplinary team.
During treatment at our Center for Older Adult Recovery in West Palm Beach, Florida, you can begin to regain health, enhance cognition and mobility, and rebuild relationships. Combined with participation in 12-Step practice, you will receive a design for living that can restore freedom and peace to your life.
Elements of Age-Specific Recovery
Building a supportive community is an essential part of successful senior addiction treatment. You need people around you who understand your journey and are similarly focused on achieving long-term sobriety. Forming these supportive bonds is certainly easier among people with similar life experiences, outlooks, and interests to your own. This is why age-specific treatment is at the heart of our treatment strategy at our senior alcohol rehab centers. We want you to feel comfortable and welcomed among a community of your peers. What’s more, our treatment programs are tailored to address every generation’s shared values and experiences. Each Origins’ professional team member provides compassionate care that accounts for your past, present, and future.
